Sample text

The term observation as used in the writing of Mead and Métraux and their circle did not have the same connotation of distantiation, nor imply the same exclusive emphasis on vision, as it does today (see Fabian 1983). For the sensualists (as they could be called) were committed to using all their senses in the study of culture, as we saw previously. Furthermore, much as they idealized objectivity, they also set great store in achieving empathy, or sensing along with their informants. ” By way of example, consider the following excerpt.

The handful of anthropologists who addressed this issue went against the contemporary trend to ignore the senses or to concentrate only on visual and auditory phenomena; instead they explored the associations between sensory practices and social values across a range of sensory ‹elds. They therefore constitute the ‹rst true predecessors of the “anthropology of the senses,” as this ‹eld would come to be known in the 1990s. In 1935 Margaret Mead argued that the pronounced tactility of the Arapesh of Papua New Guinea was not a result of their “primitive” nature or their physical environment, but was directly related to their social values and practices (1956: 39–41).
